The co-founder of Yuga Labs announced on Twitter that he has been diagnosed with congestive heart failure and is taking a leave of absence.
Some heavy news: a few days ago I was told by my doctor I have congestive heart failure. Symptoms started last year out of the blue and I put off seeking help (like an idiot) so I could keep working. But after testing, my doctor called and asked me to radically change my life. The condition is progressing pretty fast and that means I need to make some serious changes.Aronow wrote
Aronow stated that he will continue to serve on Yuga Labs’ board of directors and as a strategic advisor.
What’s next? I’ll stay on as a board member and strategic advisor. My confidence in Yuga’s future and cryptogarga’s leadership are unwavering. Daniel Alegre (dalegre) soon joining only makes me more bullish.
His departure comes as NFTs have lost value in tandem with the drop in cryptocurrency prices and the aftermath of the failures of FTX and 3AC.
In December we announced that Activision Blizzard’s COO Daniel Alegre will be joining Yuga Labs as CEO soon. Daniel brings significant experience across gaming, community building, commercial partnership development, and retail, and he is ready to hit the ground running,said Yuga
Yuga recently launched its well-received Dookie Dash game, a token-gated mini-game that allows passing holders with access to transfer their rights to play to others in the hopes of achieving a high score and winning prizes for the game’s next phase. Today, Yaga Labs has officially confirmed the situation of its co-founder.
Aronow stated that he had pushed himself well beyond his capabilities on the project, working back-to-back 12-hour days in an effort to seize a second chance at life after battling a chronic disease for the whole of his twenties.
